Rugby Station Gets New Old Looking Signs

Amtrak tends to place its own city identification signs on its stations, but in Rugby, North Dakota, the new signs recently affixed to the depot resemble the original signs they replaced.

Amtrak 4The depot, used by the Chicago-Seattle/Portland Empire Builder, was built in 1907 by the Great Northern Railway.

One existing GN sign remains at the station, but two others have been replaced.

The signs have black lettering on a white background.

“Amtrak has been very good about trying to maintain the historical appearance of the building,” said Dale Niewoehner, the coordinator of this project.

Amtrak paid for the sign renovation program, which also included cleaning and refurbishing the sign brackets.
